green gold filtering ?

Does anyone have any experience with this company or any of its products ?
I would like to know what is in the "green 5 gallon bucket filter" so I could make my own lol but then again they'd lose money if it got out.

heres the link:

Let me know what you think...If I just get WMO & kit combo I could make fuel for .33-.50 a gallon. I have a permit from the IRS to make up to 2000 gallons a year but will only be driving my truck in the winter and whenever I need to tow or haul something so this would cost me about $400 a year...

I'm not saying its not possible (it very well is) to filter the oil to oem specs or even better (you can actually do that by just running it through a paper towel- literally), but the additives (levels/PPM) must be checked to ensure proper lubrication- a little tid bit of info they forget to mention in their ad......

BTW, the paper filter (or toilet paper roll) will filter out particulates well below 5 ppm (as fine as 2 ppm) which is as clean as new oil!

The intent is to use the end product as fuel in diesel engines, NOT to put it back in the crankcase. A potential problem is the unknown of cetane number, in other words, how well does it burn in a compression ignition engine.
